Description

I BOUGHT THIS RED VELOCETTE CLUBMAN LAST SEPTEMBER FROM A CHAP WHO HAD REBUILT THE WHOLE BIKE INCLUDING THE ENGINE, ETC. THE BIKE WAS SUPPLIED NEW IN RED AS I HAVE THE ORIGINAL LOGBOOK WHICH SHOWS THE COLOUR AS RED AND ALSO THAT THE BIKE IS A GENUINE CLUBMAN. IT WAS ORIGINALLY A 350CC VIPER BUT THE PREVIOUS OWNER BOUGHT AND FITTED ALL THE PARTS REQUIRED TO TURN THE BIKE INTO A 500CC WHILST HE WAS REBUILDING IT.
HE HAD RESCUED THE BIKE FROM A SHED WHERE IT HAD BEEN FOR OVER 20 YEARS UNTIL THE ROOF COLLAPSED, SO A FULL REBUILD WAS REQUIRED.
IT WAS BUILT UP IN A ROOM INSIDE HIS HOUSE AND THE BIKE WAS STARTING AND RUNNING BUT THE CARB WAS IN NEED OF FINE ADJUSTMENT. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD A VIDEO OF THE BIKE BEING RIDDEN ALONG THE ROAD.
HE HAD BOUGHT A LUCAS RECONDITIONED MAGNETO AND A BRAND NEW ADVANCE AND RETARD MECHANISM, BRAND NEW TYRES AND INNER TUBES. BRAND NEW CARBURETTOR, NEW CHAIN AND SPROCKETS. THE GEARBOX AND CLUTCH WERE SERVICED (PAYTON). NEW GPS SPEEDO AND THE ORIGINAL SPEEDO INCLUDED. LOADS OF OTHER NEW PARTS INCLUDING ALL THE CHROMEWORK, CABLES, LUCAS BATTERY ETC., ETC. THE BIKE DIDN'T HAVE A BATTERY BOX SO I'VE BOUGHT ONE AND FITTED IT.
THE BIKE HAS DUNLOP ALUMINIUM WHEEL RIMS AND THESE MAY BE THE ORIGINAL RIMS THAT, AS A CLUBMAN, IT WOULD HAVE LEFT THE FACTORY WITH.
WHEN I GOT THE BIKE, THE RED PAINTWORK HAD A DULL ORANGE PEEL FINISH ON THE TANK AND MUDGUARDS SO I REMOVED THEM AND THEY WERE REPAINTED IN A SHINY RED. THE MUDGUARD STAYS WERE ALSO RED AS THE ORIGINAL BUT I DIDN'T LIKE THEM IN RED SO THEY WERE CHANGED TO BLACK.
THE PREVIOUS OWNER DIDN'T FIT THE DYNAMO AND I NEVER GOT ROUND TO IT, SO THAT WANTS DOING. THERE IS ALSO A BOX OF PARTS, INCLUDING BOLTS, ETC.
I WAS PLANNING TO GET THE BIKE READY FOR THIS SUMMER BUT I WAS TAKEN ILL ON BOXING DAY LAST YEAR AND I THINK MY BIKE RIDING DAYS ARE OVER UNLESS I GET A PEDDLE AND POP!
I BOUGHT THE BIKE LAST SEPTEMBER AND I WENT OVER THE BIKE PUTTING THINGS RIGHT. THERE WERE NO LOCK NUTS ON THE TLS FRONT BRAKE ADJUSTER ROD SO I FITTED THESE. ALSO THE FRONT MUDGUARD STAY SHOULD HAVE HAD A SPACER TO STOP FOULING THE FRONT BRAKE ARM SO I MADE A SPACER AND FITTED THAT TOO. I CHARGED THE BATTERY SO THAT THE SIDELIGHTS, HEADLIGHT, REAR BRAKE LIGHT AND THE HORN WERE FULLY WORKING AND I TOOK THE BIKE FOR AN MOT WHICH IT PASSED WITH NO ADVISORIES. ALSO THE PHOTOS SHOW THE SPEEDO CABLE RUBBING AGAINST THE FRONT MUDGUARD. THIS MOVED WHEN THE TANK WAS REMOVED AND IT NOW RUNS UNDER THE TANK.
